Uber release list of things that can get you banned from the app

scandal 21/09/2017

Uber have released what they call their “community guidelines” for NZ. They outline some of things that you really SHOULDN'T be doing if you want to stay on the app...

 Here are some reasons why you could lose access to Uber as a rider:

  • Damaging drivers’ or other passengers’ property. For example, damaging the car, breaking or vandalising a phone, intentionally spilling food or drink, smoking, or vomiting due to excessive alcohol consumption.
  • Physical contact with the driver or fellow riders. As a reminder, Uber has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct with drivers or fellow riders, no matter what. And you should never hit or otherwise hurt a driver or fellow passenger.
  • Use of inappropriate and abusive language or gestures. For example, asking overly personal questions, using verbal threats, and making comments or gestures that are aggressive, sexual, discriminatory, or disrespectful.
  • Unwanted contact with the driver or fellow passenger after the trip is over. For example, texting, calling, or visiting someone in person after a ride has been completed. 
  • Breaking the local law while using Uber. For example, bringing open containers of alcohol or drugs into the car.
